Best drama movie mistakes of 2017
Factual error: The underground station shown is not St. James Park, which would be 1 stop east on the district line. St. James Park has green and yellow tiles on the wall indicating District and Circle lines. The platform in the film has black and brown tiles, indicating Northern and Bakerloo lines.
Continuity mistake: When Pierce first begins to interrogate Caliban in the safe house in Mexico, a large portion of Caliban's albino makeup is smudged below his nose, revealing the actor's natural skin in his first close-up of the scene; after switching to a close-up of Pierce, then back to Caliban, the smudge has been fixed.
New this month Continuity mistake: During the beginning of the family therapy session, Dr. Beckham confirms that Ellen's father is not attending and removes the empty chair from the circle, placing it by the wall. Seconds later, the chair is back (and remains for the rest of the therapy session).
Factual error: Before and during the Marines' arrival in Marjah, some of them are wearing Dust Goggles. These would've been first issued in World War II and continued into the early 2000s. The Battle for Marjah took place in 2010, by which point these goggles had been replaced by superior models such as ESS for some time.
Factual error: When Sgt. Harper and his men are prepping their gear for the water mission, he gives Pvt. Ocre one of his rifle plates. But the plate he gives him looks like a steel plate that been wrapped in plastic. In reality, the plates issued to Marines and Soldiers were and still are ceramic Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPI for short). The plate seen in the film looks nothing like the actual ones.
